Some of those homeless people can be really disgusting and nasty. I find them distasteful and don’t want to be around them.
Still, they rank higher than novasteve.
Its not my business and there was no public nudity. As I said, It’s not illegal for a homeless guy to pitch a tent while scantily clad women are bending over, exercising.
When a bunch of homeless guys pitch tents, we get Hoovervilles.

Er, as a citizen it is your business. And as someone who rants against crime perpetrated by the homeless you already have made it your business. And, to quote you “touching itself on occasion in the genital area” in the manner you described is “public lewdness” and that is illegal.
Interesting that you took no action especially as you have a great interest in protecting the public from the homeless.
Touching itself through clothing. Is it illegal to touch yourself if you are clothed? That’s like saying you can be arrested for wearing a sports bra in public, because you are really naked under the sports bra.
That’s like saying breathing cigarette smoke is like listening to an unpleasant effeminate voice.
So once again NS complains, takes no action, and even excuses lewd public displays. Yes. It’s like saying an elf is the same as a troll.
how is it lewd if they aren’t naked? we have to deal with lots of unpleasantries in public, but not all are illegal. Did you hear me say lock homeless people up for any reason other than being violent? I walk by some of the stinkiest people on a daily basis and in a free society you don’t lock people up unless they break laws. It isn’t illegal to be stinky. It isn’t illegal to pitch a tent in public. However when you invite homeless people you increase the chances for crime due to the mental illness. Do you deny we had a homeless guy attempt to throw a molotove at Ballston mall?
@NS asks, “how lewd are they if they aren’t naked?”
Try this experiment. Stand on the sidewalk in front of the Arl Co Police Station. Do what you described the homeless as doing, which was touch your genital area repeatedly with a big grin. Call me from jail when you are arrested for public lewdness. Then try to deny reality.
But, you won’t. Because you never ever put your money where your mouth is. All hat, no cattle. Once again.
@NS, still waiting for you to back up your arguments with action……….See above two posts…..
“It's not illegal for a homeless guy to pitch a tent while scantily clad women are bending over, exercising.”
Nor for you to watch. Which you apparently were doing.
@NS: still waiting for your response whether you will test whether groping yourself in public is against the law or not. I guess you can’t turn this into a one sentence question? eh?
@NS Im assuming that you mean Gateway Park with your disparaging hobo remark. Why dont you stop down there some Sunday when the volunteers are providing meals to the homeless and have a discussion with one or two of these people so you can really understand their circumstances? Maybe then you wouldn’t make fun of their situation.
